    Thanks for the input Horners, we are trying to stick to regularly used abbreviations so as not to end up with hundreds in one thread.

    Mash - to soak malted grain in hot water, releasing fermentable sugars
    Lauter - to lift the grain from the wort
    Sparge - to rinse the grain with hot water after lautering
    Malt - grain that has been soaked, germinated and dried

    Short and sweet, but are they good enough? Please critique or edit. I'm only a junior member but would like to contribute to this excellent forum. Seems ten times bigger than its nearest competitor!
